We're sorry, but all tickets sales have ended because the event is expired.

Children with Developmental Language Disorder (DLD) can have difficulties with some or all areas of language, including syntax, morphology, semantics, word finding, pragmatics, discourse and phonology.  Each child will present with strengths and areas of need, which requires an individualised approach. But how do you know if your therapy is working? This online workshop will address decision making about where to start with goal setting and how to measure outcomes, so you know when the goal is achieved, and when it is time to start something new.

This webinar will be hosted online using Zoom.  Details will be emailed to participants in the days prior to the workshop. Please book as soon as you have decided to avoid missing out!

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Following completion of the webinar, you will:

  • Be familiar with a decision making framework for language therapy goals.
  • Understand how to measure a child’s progress.
  • Know when to continue, stop or start something new.

PARTICIPANTS

This workshop has been developed for speech pathologists. However, clinical psychologists and speech pathology students may also consider attending.

Please email connect@TheDLDProject.com with any questions regarding the registration process.
